to be reformed the united states, and australia is going through a major copyright review, and we're trying to set in a stone of like of these cowhich right provisions that are clearly in flux. and many of those trade advisory committees want it to remain secret. >> joshua i'm not sure that secrecy in in and of itself is the rub here, because most free trade agreements are done primarily behind closed doors. i think what is really getting people's attention is the number of industry lobbyists who had access. do you have any reason why? >> i think that's being played out in the sense that there are definitely trade advisory committees who have access to the negotiations, but they are not actually lobbyists. the administration has been very clear that lobbyists aren't going to have access. a lot of them are corporate, because a lot of this has to do with trade, which at the end of the day is being conducted by companies who have a particular interest and expertise in how that works. so i think it needs to be understanding that there is an expertise that you would want the government to listen

commissioned a new report. decision time is getting closer. >> most americans don't know the united states gets most of its imported oil from canada. thanks to new technologies canada churned out oil in amounts unimaginable and for this the u.s. is seeking a new way to get that oil to this market. thus, the keystone xl pipeline plan, a project bringing oil and jobs to the u.s. in significant quantities. because the project crosses an international border the state department was required to produce an environmental impact report that came last week. in the long-awaited report it opened the door for building the pipeline. with or without the pipeline extension, canada's oil will find a way to get to market - if not by pipeline, by railway. either way the carbon footprint is significant, and that has environmentalists in revolt. it leaves the president with a difficult decision. we welcome the u.s. state department report and encourage that it concludes that keystone xl would not have a significant environmental impact. >> the keystone pipeline extension will transport nearly a million barrels of

in his face in france and coming to the united states, the french public regard fltion their own domestic political situation, obama is pretty popular there. if you want to make references back it to old europe and donald rumsfeld complaining in the post-9/11 years about how france and germany would not support american military adventurism, obama has ended that. obama in the last five years got the united states out of iraq. the french are happy about that. it's a safe bet for hollande domestically to come to washington and be seen as close to this intellectually, ground breaking, forward thinking american president. the extent to which it trumps germany's relationship with the united states, i don't think so. . >> i think that was not well received by merkel to put it mildly. she is the leader of that whole constituency in europe. i don't think she was very happy about that. i also don't think she was very happy about the obama administration and she has not been for quite a qiel. where as hollande who has unique problems in france at this stage, had this was a perfect escape for him. i

skeptical about gun-control but the fact of the matter is there are 300,000 in the united states. and i am doubtful any law that congress can pass could do much about gun violence. >> host: 300,000 laws? >> guest: i am sorry 300,000 guns. >> host: 300 million. >> guest: thank you. treated million guns in the united states. i understand that is controversial and and like to talk about that i am not sure i am right but the way to not talk about it is to talk about the second amendment as an issue start to talk about the second amendment to very bad things happen. the first, the discussion is sidetracked that could do not be more irrelevant instead of talking about whether the laws will control gun violence or even if it is an aspect of the natural right instead of that we start to talk about the relationship between the introductory clause and what exactly was the militias 200 years ago and what is the relationship and our constitution and the english bill of rights? it has nothing to do with the question it is hard to imagine anyone with take seriously the proposition we should decide what
